Surprise! The Wall Street Journal loves them some Lieberman

The "conservative" Deciders have spoken and they say that a McCain-Lieberman ticket would be a winner!  Well, if it weren't for the uneducated rubes who think the Republican Party's vice presidential nominee should be at least, ya know, a Republican:

Mr. Lieberman's national security credentials are first-rate, and we've known him long enough to remember his opposition to an income tax in Connecticut, and his support for lower capital gains taxes, school vouchers and private Social Security accounts. Liberated from having to run as a Democrat, he might recall those policy instincts.

We have no doubt he'd be a better vice president than many oft-mooted Republicans, including some of those who are favorites of the anti-Lieberman alarmists.

Sen. Lieberman would make a better vice president than a Mitt Romney or a Tim Pawlenty or a Sarah Palin because he might go back to holding some conservative positions that these "oft-mooted Republicans" already hold.  Well boys, you sold me!

(h/t Kathryn Jean Lopez, who thinks a convention cage fight between National Review and the WSJ might be in the mix.  Blech.  Please don't film it.)
